Hera Hub members are doing amazing things! We want to celebrate and share in their successes and will be announcing them periodically here on our blog.
After being diagnosed with a cervical tumor that was linked to popular feminine care products, Arion Long started Femly, a hi-tech social enterprise that manufactures and delivers safer alternatives directly to your door! Femly is disrupting the entire feminine care industry with their convenient subscription mode, low-cost delivery, and social giveback. In only a few short years, Arion has become a nationally and internationally recognized entity for her work in increasing feminine care access, health education, and advocacy through segments on NPR, Money Magazine, Buzzfeed, and more!
In addition to being an advocate for feminine care access, Arion recently won over $20,000 in cash and in-kind prizes at the Hera Hub DC Fast Pitch and the pitch competition at the Hera Venture Summit that took place in September. Arion believes that Femly’s win is a testament to gender-equity, access, and more for women everywhere.
